    .What does this mean…”We have begun the process of obtaining approvals to extend the
    waiver offer for those living in cities that partner with the shelter ?? ”

    If it means the county will be asking for approval from the City Managers Association
    Animal Care committee, then the answer will most probably be NO!
    This committee, formerly called the Financial Operations Advisory Board
    and supposedly represented the then 18 cities which contracted with the
    county for animal services, stood by and watched the 75 year old animal
    shelter become dilapidated and unsanitary for staff and animals alike
    and did nothing, but say NO. The committee has not truly represented the people in the cities. We must have a committee which collaborates with the constituents and DOES care about the welfare of the animals. San Diego County with the same population has 3 county animal shelters and 4 nonprofit humane society campuses which assist with adoptions and teach Humane
    Education vs Orange County which has one county animal shelter and zero nonprofit humane society campuses.Orange county is currently so far behind, its not only embarrassing, its ignorant and cruel.

      In other words, just another useless PR flack piece.

        I spoke my 3 minutes at the last BoS meeting on their agenda item concerning interns from Chapman University. I suggested the county consider collaborating with Chapman for interns to help with teaching Humane Education to children in the county. I suggested this because Chapman is the home of the Albert Schweitzer Institute. Schweitzer’s philosophy was reverence for all life. Chair person Lisa Bartlett kept interrupting me and tried to stop me from speaking, so I don’t know if the supervisors will follow through. Preventative action to stop the killing at the animal shelter and education for our children is extremely important.

    How comical. These people are so jealous and insecure that they can’t put out a dopey press release without each one getting some canned quotation that they never said.
